Caulmert has recently been appointed to provide structural engineering services for a new ‘annex’ building near Colwyn Heights, North Wales. The building is a single storey structure with a fully open plan layout, which incorporates a lounge and tv area, balcony, social space and bar area as well as a separate three car garage.
Due to the internal arrangement excluding ceilings, the structure will need to carefully consider lateral stability as well as lateral spread at eaves level. Sloping ground on the site allows the introduction of a new balcony to be incorporated to give panoramic views over the North Wales coastline.
